We are pleased to announce that the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, the iSchool at UBC, will hold its 6th Annual Research Day on Friday, March 11th, 2016, in the Irving K.

Research Day showcases the contributions of the iSchool students and faculty working at the intersections of archival, information, library and children’s literature studies.
This year, Research Day will focus broadly on perspectives on providing access to analogue and digital cultural heritage, records and information, considering the many and various factors that work to enable and/or constrain access in different contexts, and the potential and challenge of new access environments.
